Managing Your Student Account

After registering for classes, you will receive an online term bill, which includes all tuition and fees. In order to complete the registration process, all students must do one of the following prior to the date listed on your online account statement:

view & pay your Term bill
By accessing your student account, you can view your student account, make payments/apply credits, manage your refunds, and confirm your attendance. We cannot credit your account until your loan is disbursed to Student Accounting. The certification of your loan and receipt of the loan by the Office of Financial Aid does NOT automatically confirm your attendance. Loans should be taken out for the “academic year” not calendar year.
Students also may print their term bills by selecting the "PRINT YOUR TERM BILL" link under "Payment Options" when viewing the student account. Term bill payments mailed and postmarked by the due date will not be assessed late fees.
Students may receive a refund based on financial aid, loan credits or overpayments to their term bill. For students who have financial aid, their aid will be applied to the term bill to cover the semester tuition and fee charges after completion of all of the paperwork for the award package.
If the financial aid award exceeds the balance due, students are entitled to receive a refund of the credit balance on their student account. Refunds are available to students after the add/drop period if there is a credit balance on the account due to disbursed financial aid. We encourage all students to sign up for direct deposit in order to receive refunds faster.
- Rutgers University utilizes the services of ScholarChip (RU ScholarRefund) to electronically deposit student refunds directly into the checking or savings bank account provided. This service is highly secure and utilizes SSL encryption, so your information remains safe and private.
- Students can set up direct deposit for their refunds online via ScholarChip.

- Note: All PLUS loan credit balances that are refunded to the parent borrower will be mailed by paper check to the parent's address listed on the PLUS loan application.
